Books Read in 2003

At a total of 41 books, this adds up to just over three a month, which to a voracious reader is pretty shameful. I’m keeping in mind that for the past few months I wasn’t able to read hardly anything for pleasure because of how busy I was with work and school-related stuff. There are also a few more that I read most of, but didn’t finish for one reason or another, that I didn’t include. I write them all down so that I’ll remember them. Even reading over this list just now reminded me of ones that I had almost forgotten about. Here goes:
